Melanie Gretchen

Melanie is a New York-based actress and singer.

Since arriving from Denver, she has appeared in the Danica Patrick interactive website feature and in the independent film "One Way," which won Best Experimental Film at the Big Apple Film Festival.

She is the 10th person ever to complete Karen Kohlhaas's 20 Monologue Challenge, to perform 20 memorized pieces consecutively, in the 10-15 years Karen has offered it.

This summer she performed in Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival for the second time. In 2016, she was in David Lang's "the public domain." This August she sang a solo in the piece "In the Name of the Earth" by John Luther Adams.

This fall she composed five songs for William Shakespeare's play "As You Like It," four of which she sang as the Goddess of Marriage. She has just been personally recognized for contributing to the director's vision, in a review by Opplaud:

"Original folk music by Melanie Gretchen and Donna Stearns, combined with costumes by Deborah Houston, updated Arden’s setting from a Renaissance-era forest to a hippie commune in the 1960’s."
